Geneva Bay is a Governor town along the shores of the bay of the same name founded by a group led by Architect_21. The town's location was picked after Architect due to its climate, ocean side location, and its proximity to Shadowpoint, New Phoenix, and St. Anna. After a while of building Architect gave Geneva Bay to the deputy mayor EliteNeon who gave it to JustFarkie who quickly got the town to Councillor.

Currently, the city is large and prosperous with a large number of notable buildings scattered around the waterfront and Geneva Bay's man-made harbour. The city itself is located in a small valley located in the northeastern mountains in an area that is generally void of most population. The nearest major population centres currently are New Phoenix and St. Anna.

The city is under moderate development with the waterfront area expanding and new districts and buildings being planned and will soon begin construction. The area will also be served by a planned transportation system, which is currently in the works. Two main road connections link Geneva Bay to the neighbouring cities of Hendon and Winterside.


The town in early 2017

A recent archaeological study published by the local museum proved that the area had seen no native habitation prior to its official founding. This is against popular belief which was that the area was originally inhabited due to its protective and fertile seaside location.

The area was officially discovered by EliteNeon, the owner of the nearby small hamlet of Shadowpoint, and one of the people who joined Architect_21's search for a beautiful and practical area to build and grow second town. Architect accepted Elite's offer for the area as it contained all the elements he needed to plan an extensive European town.

Early Development

Right after the town was founded Architect_21 quickly reshaped the waterfront by levelling off and raising the shoreline with artificial walls and surfaces. After that, the first structure to be completed in the town was the Geneva Bay lighthouse, a landmark that would last for years. Soon after the peninsula on which the lighthouse sat was developed more including a museum. For the time, the island served the purpose of a meeting place and trading post for merchants in the eastern ocean.

As the intentions of the town changed, more artificial walls were built and eventually, the walls closed off an area of the bay on three sides, forming the Geneva Harbour. Along the edges of the harbour, beautiful statues, fountains, trees, market stalls, and artwork were installed to make the area a tourist hot spot.

In early 2017, Derpy_Melon graciously built a bridge between the lighthouse and the shoreline, completing the harbour and adding on another landmark to finish Geneva Bay. In recent days, the town has seen development beyond the waterfront with a small but lively park and roads being built to help the town expand.

Farkie1's Ownership

When Farkie1 became mayor of the city he began the construction of shops and a housing estate in the mountains to house more people. Farkie1 has been improving the relationships with nearby towns and cities such as Shadowpoint and Hendon, the second of which a new B-class road is being constructed to. There were plans for a partnership with Shadowpoint. The town rapidly increased in rank gaining Councillor in August 2017 and Mayor in the November of the same year.

In November 2017, JustFarkie managed to get the growing town to the rank of Mayor with endorsements from godzilltrain and hvt2011 despite the town having just sixteen buildings.

The Great Expansion

During 2018, progress was slow and barely any buildings were constructed. However, in August 2019, Farkie1 began constructing more buildings in a new district near the new RaiLinQ station. Over the next 6 months, the town doubled in size. New modern buildings were constructed in the outer regions of the town. Farkie1's expansion eventually led to the city achieving the Senator rank on 29 June 2020. Following this, the city's growth slowed, with only the original New Indigo International Airport being constructed in July 2020, along with its surrounding buildings. Progress came to a halt for nearly 3 years, but resumed in September 2023 when the Port District was built. The city achieved Governor on 21 September 2023 and plans for a replacement for the old New Indigo International Airport have been approved, with the new airport planned to meet capacity for the surrounding cities of Shadowpoint, Hendon and Winterside too.

Old Town

Geneva Bay's original district is situated in the heart of the city, being the old town. The stunning natural harbour is a prime location for a picturesque photograph by the historical town hall or lighthouse. Visit the remains of the Geneve Castle, the historical fortress protecting the New Indigo region of which Geneva Bay was once the capital. Visit the shops along the waterfront or take a scenic boat journey around the harbour.

Saint Eustache

As the city expanded, a new district was constructed. This contains a RaiLinQ station with services to Winterside, Creeperville and Ravenna. More shops and apartments can be found in this area as well as an AlliFoods store and Grape Store.


In late 2019, Geneva Bay's authorities planned to expand to the east. However, this did not come to reality until March 2020 when the AlliStar Studio 1+2 was constructed. The Geneva Gardens were then built as well as the shops on Dove Street and finally a bus station. This district is likely to continue expanding over the next few weeks.


In early 2020, Geneva Bay expanded southwards along the road toward Shadowpoint. Several new residential buildings were constructed as well as a green space by the white sand Genfer-Sud Beach.
